In my perspective the girls in Nagasarete Arianto are badass, they live in a secluded island and in the last 12 yeas there are no man in the island. They are doing even the hardest manual labor themselves.
And the most badass of them is Machi the older pettan miko sisters. Because she said "Ki ni shinai de, atashi hamono wo motsu to shizen ni waracchau no" (Don't worry, I always laugh when getting a cuttlery).

lol... as much as I would love to take part in the Revy, Balalaika-sama and Major Debate... butr before that, lets not forget Urd from Ah My Goddess. I think her coolness is compromised only because she is in a romance anime. But figure wise and style wise.... she is very very very cool.
Others would be Sakagami Tomoyo from CLANNAD and Mao-neesan from FMP.

And Mostly, people people... LETS NOT FORGET CLAYMORE

Teresa, Galatea, Ophelia... Hello... How do u forget all of them

EDIT: I see first page having CLaymore mentioned >.<
BTW... I saw someone mention Yuko from xxxHOLiC.. She is very very cool character.. but i guess when we say Bad ass.. we mean a bit different dont we???

Many more are definitely there. We just need to think.

Tomoyo .. badass ? Sorry, that simply doesn't cut it. Sure she can put up a tough appearance and kick you a thousand times in a span of few seconds and send you flying to the moon, but that doesn't make her "badass". She acts like that only when provoked and is perfectly composed, normal girl with no specific aura about her when she is not.

Pretty sure you're talking about Aikawa Maki. She's badass too, but Yuki is better looking.

I phear NSW’s disapproval even before I post but I have to in the thread of Ultimate badasses

The discussion has been focusing on Shonen as it the appropriate genre . I would like to veer away from shonen and state some badasses from other genre dramas/shojos . I know they are not spectacular as their shonen counterparts . But badass is not just about kicking ass and looking good it’s also about grit determination and heart ( cliche I know Xp)

So presenting some badasses from shojo/drama

* Ashiya Mizuki from Hana Kimi Live Action

- Entering and Enrolling in a all boy’s school and most importantly fitting in .

- Staying focused on her cause

- Finally yet importantly running a marathon with an impaled bloody foot. Passing out from exhaustion not pain

* Han Ji Eun from FullHouse (LvA)

- Facing the challenge of being homeless penniless

- Putting up with Lee Young Jae and overpowering him with Spunk and Attitude

- Falling in love with a man knowing he will never return her love

- Singing and Dancing to Three Bears (clciky) to impress Inlaws oO


( for those of you who have no idea about Full House here is a teaser : )

anyhoo, my top one would be Integra from Hellsing (manga!), and second and third would be Balalaika and Revy from Black Lagoon.
Lady Eboshi from Princess Mononoke. She's basically the a female warlord in feudal Japan. She was also one of the antagonist s, who happened to plunder the land of iron and warring with the animal-gods of the nearby forest. She's commanding and ruthless.

One of her highlight "badass" moments from the movie is when she sniped out enemy field officers using flintlock guns during a battle. Fun to watch burly armored men explode in mid-command.

(Miyazaki is a self-professed feminist.)

The Lord of Nightmares' mere existence in Motoko's universe would destroy it. That does not make her more badass than Motoko. Likewise, Motoko's ability to kill every Black Lagoon character because of her technological and organizational advantages does not make her more badass.

Edit: Okay NSW already said all that like days ago or something. Never mind.


If I had to try to extract something other than a strong dislike for Black Lagoon from that rant, it would be the idea that being badass in a smart series counts more to you than being a badass in a series where all the characters are caricatures of some Hollywood notion of badassery. Having 'badassness' as a derived attribute from your actual qualities as a character should mean more than being designed around the image.

Is that what you're saying?

My vote goes to Balalaika, Revy and... Eda!

If we consider the badass actions/screentime ratio, she surpasses even Balalaika. And she's a nun too! What can be more badass than a nun like that? ^^

You obviously haven't seen the movie or read the manga. She is very much badassed.

My picks would be various Claymores, as mentioned a lot.

Revy from Black Lagoon is an obvious choice.

Seness from Scrapped Princess, feral one there. (I'd also nominate Raquel due to her power, but she's far too nice to be called a badass)

All of the Gunslinger Girls.

Shion/Mion and Rena from Higurashi.

Victoria Seras from Hellsing.

Suzuka from Outlaw Star.

Touka and Kagura from Utawarerumono.

That's a bunch though, if I had to pick just one... Yuuko from xxxHolic for sure. though Hellsing's Seras would be a close second.

Yeah, for some reason, C.C. came to mind as soon as I saw this thread...not the most badass, but she had her moments.

Galatea/Teresa from Claymore as well as L5 yandere Shion are pretty badass.

This thread prompted me to actually watch Black Lagoon, it was actually a pretty decent series, and now I've got to see these so called "badass" females from there. I'm sorry but Revvy and Eda are pathetic at times, I cannot give the title of bad ass to these characters. The only character (female wise) that is a bad ass is Balalaika. Revvy and Eda as characters are just temperamental bitches.

For me, a true bad ass is one who strikes fear into all the characters around them and still keeps a serenity around themselves while doing so. They as characters, never really go into rage and most of the Black Lagoon characters do not meet these requirements.

In Hotel Moscow, Balalaika rapes you.

Cheers.
